Valdosta --  Now anyone can view live streaming video from a link on the City of Valdosta's homepage. From 28 cameras throughout Valdosta, drivers can control the camera from their computer to view traffic conditions.

"They could quickly scan some images to see if the traffic is flowing good in the direction they'd like to travel, or if there happens to be some type of blockage or some kind of problem, they could then choose an alternate route," says City Engineer Von Shipman.

The website accessing this information has had over one thousand hits today alone.
The Engineering department plans to have 42 camera locations total by the time this project is completed.
